Doctor’s orders.  

Before enrolling in Aviation 101 and flying an aircraft, you’ll need to obtain an aviation
medical certificate from an FAA-certified aviation medical examiner (AME).

3 classes of aviation medical certificates:

  • Class 1 (most restrictive)
  • Class 2
  • Class 3 (least restrictive)

Parkland College requires that you pass a Class 3 physical examination—at minimum—before enrolling in your first Aviation course. Any class of medical certificate with a student pilot certificate is acceptable.
